Letters to the Editor

Civic pride

Editor: What a whirlwind it was. Now that the dust has settled on Election 2018, I look back with appreciation for all I learned and observed about our government and legislative process. The voter turnout was great — over 10 percent increase from the 2014 midterm election. That is ...

Volunteers are abandoned

Editor: We have the pleasure of living in a tight knit community such as Lisbon, where everyone knows everyone. Sometimes this can be bad depending on what you said or did at the bar last weekend. However, the beauty of living in a small town is reflected most when tragedy strikes or a ...

The right track

Editor: Congratulations to the Wellsville Board of Education and Superintendent Richard Bereschik on your decision to renovate Nicholson Field with the installation of a turf field, six lane all weather track, upgraded practice field, and parking area. This is truly a great investment in ...

Still waiting

No fan of Issue 1

Editor: With Ohio’s current drug problem, it is very troubling to learn that the Democratic nominee for state treasurer, Rob Richardson, would support a constitutional amendment that has the potential to enable to flow of more drugs into our communities. But I think there is hope with ...

He picks jobs

Editor: Mobs or Jobs. I’m not the first to write this phrase but when I first saw it in print it stuck in my head as being an exquisitely cogent and concise summation of the choice we electorate have to make Nov. 6. While the Democratic Party is no longer the one your parents or ...

Rebel supporter

Editor: I taught full time in the Crestview school system for 29 years and have been a volunteer teacher for the past 25 years. Teaching has been very rewarding for me personally. Based on my experience, I know how great the teachers, administrators and students are in our system. I also ...
